New York City has quickly become one of the main battlegrounds between those who favor law and order and those who want to unleash chaos on the streets.
In recent weeks, a number of protests have kicked off where agitators have taken advantage of the mayhem caused by the death of George Floyd to go out and rampage.
Patriotic Americans have responded in kind with peaceful demonstrations standing behind law enforcement who are under constant siege by the media and radical activists.
One would think that Republicans, people who are part of a party that claims to be in favor of law and order, would be completely on the same page when it comes to supporting law enforcement.
However, one Republican leader has cowered in the face of adversity. Joel Acevedo, the President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club decided to sit on the sidelines.
“Good police do not need defending,” Acevedo told the New York Times. “You can be pro-police and still support accountability to a police system that perpetuates inequities in Black communities. They’re not mutually exclusive.”
For his milquetoast statement and refusal to participate in a pro-police rally, Acevedo was immediately criticized by Gavin Wax, the President of the New York Young Republican Club.

Wax tweeted, “Hey @KingsCountyGOP do you support this sort-of garbage? Why is your officially chartered Young Republican org anti-Police? Are you guys asleep at the wheel? Anyone home? You were happy to attack my club months ago but now your YR club won’t back the blue? Get it together.”

BLP reached out to Wax, who offered his take on the situation:
The Brooklyn Young Republican Club continues to demonstrate that they are nothing more than a leftist Democrat front operation attempting to erode Republican institutions in New York. From their support of open borders, to nationalized healthcare, to universal basic income, and now their anti-Police rhetoric, it is clear that their viewpoints goes far beyond being simply anti-Trump. They do not represent Republicans in Brooklyn or anywhere for that matter, their lack of real membership or attendance at events shows how their messaging is even too radical for Lincoln Project cronies. We are calling on the Brooklyn GOP and the Association of New York Young Republican Clubs to not only condemn and censure the Brooklyn Young Republicans but terminate their charter and allow real Young Republicans to form a club that truly represents the conservative movement.
In a time when chaos is only growing, the Right needs resolute figures. Those who are passive will be useless in the inevitable conflict between the Right and the radical Left.
Thanks to Spineless, Establishment Republicans, Senate Panel Delays Vote to Subpoena Big Tech CEOs
Republicans Continue to Show Pathetic They are on the Issues that Matter Most
America First nationalist’s hopes of having Big Tech CEOs testify before Congress about allegations of censorship directed towards the Right were temporarily dashed on October 19, 2020.
Politico reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed plans to vote on subpoenas to force the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook to go before the Senate and be questioned about their anti-Right wing censorship policies.
Some Republicans ended up having cold feet and decided to postpone the vote much to the disappointment of right wing activists who have complained about Big Tech’s anti-free speech policies.
President Donald Trump and a number of nationalist Republicans have sharply criticized Facebook and Twitter over their censorship of a controversial New York Post report that exposed Hunter Biden, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, and his corrupt behavior.
Originally, GOP officials in the Judiciary Committee announced plans to hold a markup on October 20 to determine if they would subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to get his perspective on allegations concerning his company’s policies that muzzle conservative viewpoints. Twitter denies claims regarding Twitter’s censorship policies.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, revealed that the planned vote would also call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify.
The panel stated on October 19 that it would determine whether they would issue subpoenas during a executive session on October 22 where it will also allegedly approve Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The committee declared in a statement that it will maintain negotiations with the companies “to allow for voluntary testimony” by the CEO. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the panel will proceed to take a vote on the subpoenas “at a date to be determined.”
The subpoenas would compel the tech big wigs to testify on the reports of “suppression and/or censorship” of New York Post stories and on “any other content moderation policies, practices, or actions that may interfere with or influence elections for federal office,” according to a committee document released on October 19.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is the chair of the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution said to reporters that he’s expecting the committee to preside over testimonies from the Twitter and Facebook chiefs “shortly” regardless of whether they come to the decision on their own volition.
“One way or another, either voluntarily or pursuant to subpoena, they will testify and they will testify before the election,” Cruz stated.
In a separate hearing for the Senate Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will join Google CEO Sundar Pichai on October 28 for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which generally shields Big Tech companies from a liability.
Cruz, who is a member of both Judiciary and Commerce committees, wants each panel to carry out their own hearings with the tech chiefs before election day. “I believe we need a separate hearing in Judiciary because the issues being discussed in the two committees are different,” Cruz remarked.
Big Tech has become too powerful, especially during a time when social media has become the de facto public square. Republicans will need to get serious about making online speech receive the same treatment as general political speech.
